Not a good look for him. It'll raise concerns about character issues.

Depending on what happened this plus his injury could cause him to slide to the middle of the round.

He could slide well as 11. 6-0, 229 pound middle linebackers who can't run before the draft don't go high in the first round.

Wait, hospital staff, or team appointed training staff? If it's hospital staff then that's bad, but if it's the training staff, those are usually hospital employees that are hired by the team, even worse a look. I have a good friend who was on the medical staff for the Saints for a few years (through Oschner) and I have met most of the guys on our training staff, they are good guys. This is an issue of a kid acting like a kid around adults.

I'd like to know what in the world they were arguing about. Especially for it to get so bad that he got sent home. That's insane. Every year the craziest stuff happens with at least 1 top draft pick. You couldn't even make this stuff up.

Have a good friend who was on the medical staff for the Saints for a few years (through Oschner) our training staff (like most in the league according to him), are good guys.

No disrespect, but I disagree. I see it more as an adult acting like a kid. We've already seen this rerun. His name was Galette.

He's got a shoulder. There's an outside chance that they wouldn't clear him the way Bama doctors would to compete tomorrow and he flipped out.

Which could work to his benefit. I mean, on D coaches probably love a player with aggressive passion.

...but if he was just a jerk for no good reason? Yeah, no. Still sort of want though. Need more details.

Foster is a kid, Gallete is a loser adult.

From how the Combine medical screan process was explained to me, each team sends their medical teams, and they are broken into smaller teams with the medical teams from other teams. They run physicals, exams, everything medical that a team could possibly want to know about a guy dating back to the first time in his life that he ever went to the hospital. From there, all the information is shared among the teams. If further exams are desired a player and his agent have the say so in that, but everyone gets the same exam, and every team knows everything about everyone. The fact pretty intense.
